Woodbine Horse Racing Odds
Woodbine Racetrack is a Canadian track for thoroughbred horse racing located in the Etobicoke area of Toronto, Ontario. It is the only horseracing track in North America which stages thoroughbred and standardbred horse racing programs on the same day. It is owned by Woodbine Entertainment Group, formerly known as the Ontario Jockey Club. This track offers world-class, live thoroughbred racing from April to December and manages and hosts Canada’s most famous race, the Queen’s Plate horse race.
The racetrack epic story began more than a century ago, back in 1881 when Woodbine opened as the Ontario Jockey Club. Today, Woodbine has evolved from a picturesque little horse racing track in east Toronto to a world-class entertainment destination offering the very best dining, entertainment and horse racing experiences.
In 1976, the track was the opening venue for the Summer Paralympics. The Racetrack also hosted the Breeders’ Cup in 1996 and the Arlington Million in 1988. The Woodbine race course became the home to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame since August 22, 1997.
The outermost E. P. Taylor turf course for thoroughbreds at Woodbine Racetrack was completed in 1994, is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long with a chute allowing races of 1.125 miles (1.811 km) to be run around one turn. It is irregularly shaped, the clubhouse turn departing from the traditional North American oval, and the backstretch is from 2.5 feet (76 cm) to 3 feet (91 cm) higher than the homestretch.
